(AD 38-64) Polemo II - AE 21825 viewsPolemo II, 38-64 AD. AE21 (6.56g). Uncertain mint in Armenia, ca 60-64 AD. ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΜΕΓ Μ ΑΝΤΩΝΙΟΥ ΠΟΛΕΜΩΝΟΣ (ΟΣ in ligature), diademed, naked portrait bust of Polemo right within dotted border / ΙΟΥΛΙΑΣ ΜΑΜΜΑΙΑΣ ΒΑΣΙΛΙΣΣΗΣ, diademed, draped portrait bust of Mammaea right within dotted border. About VF. Extremely rare, perhaps the third specimen known.

Originally appointed king of Pontus by Caligula in 38 AD, Polemo made a career dependent on Roman politics. When he was deprived of his (nominal) rule of Bosporus in favor of a certain Mithradates in 41, Claudius gave him the district of the Cilician city Olba instead. In 64, Polemo got at least a part of Armenia as a reward for assisting Corbulo's campaigns. However, just four years later Nero annexed the kingdom of Pontus, and so Polemo's rule was confined to the city of Olba. The king's consort appearing on this coin was Polemo's second wife. His first marriage was to Berenike, sister of Agrippa II and later consort of Titus. His second wife, Mammaea, given the identity of the names, seems likely to have originated from the same region in Syria as the later Roman empress.

Very Fine.

Hero and Leander were one of the most famous lovers in ancient mythology. Hero was a priestess of Aphrodite who lived in the city of Sestos (on the Dardanelles). Leander was a young man from Abydos who lived on the opposite Asian side of the strait. Leander fell in love with Hero, but his parents were against a marriage. He would swim every night across the Hellespont to be with her secretly. Hero always would light a lamp at the top of her tower to guide her lover his way. However, one stormy night the waves tossed Leander in the sea and the breezes blew out Hero's light. Leander lost his way and drowned. When Hero saw his dead body, she threw herself over the edge of the tower to her death to be with him.
